Last month saw the culmination of years of hard work
for our undergraduate and postgraduate students as they
donned their cap and gown for Spring graduation.
More than 660 students received awards at ceremonies at the
Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton on Wednesday 20 April and Thursday
21 April 2011.
Students from courses across the University
came together along with lecturers, senior University staff,
Governors and local dignitaries, as the Vice-Chancellor, Professor
Caroline Gipps conferred their awards.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Caroline Gipps, said: “The University
takes great pride in the achievements of its students and
graduation offers an opportunity to celebrate their hard work and
commitment to their studies.
"This is my last graduation before I retire from my post as
Vice-Chancellor, and it is always a pleasure to witness the
happiness that this day brings to our graduates, their families and
The three separate ceremonies that took place across the
two days were all preceded by a procession beginning at the
University buildings in Wulfruna Street to the theatre.
The Vice-Chancellor added: “The academic processions are a
wonderful addition to congregation and allow us to share our
celebrations with the rest of the city.
The University’s School of Health and Wellbeing
also presented an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science to
Professor Tony Hazell, who has been Chair of the UK Nursing and
Midwifery Council since January 2009, and five senior members of
University staff were conferred with professorships.
